For week three of Restaurant Revisits, I am going to check in with two more of my favorite restaurants from my articles over the last year. I am providing links to the original articles, and letting you know their current status. In addition, I am giving links to my recent articles with by-county spreadsheets of open (for carryout, curbside, and/or delivery) restaurants.

Pollo Delicioso

  • 155 Central Square Drive
  • Prince Frederick, MD
  • 301-933-2040

For fabulous Peruvian rotisserie chicken, go to Pollo Delicioso!! In addition to the tender, juicy chicken, Robert Coulon and his crew have tasty fresh, homemade sides, salsa’s and sauces. Make sure you get the Ceviche, it is amazing! I never was a fan of Ceviche until I ordered it at Pollo Delicioso. Ceviche is a seafood dish that originated in Peru and is typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices (such as lemon or lime) and spiced with seasonings including chopped onions, salt, and coriander. Another must-order treat is the fabulous salsa and chips, I couldn’t stop eating it!

It is so easy to get great food because Pollo Delicioso offers drive thru, carry-out, and delivery service. Order online (at and pick-up your order, you never have to get out of your vehicle!

Pollo Delicioso hours are Monday through Saturday 11:00am to 8:00pm and Sunday 11:00am – 7:00pm. Check out the lunch specials on their Facebook page or website.
